A couple of months ago, I posted a summary of what kit staff members of The Verge carried in their bags: all but one of them carried an Apple laptop. My other favorite tech site, Ars Technica, just ran a piece on what their staff use in their home offices and the results were very different. Actually, they weren’t.
Lee Aylward: Lead Programmer – MacBook Air, PC for “gaming and IE testing”. Seriously: IE testing.
Aurich Lawson: Creative Director- Retina MacBook Pro and iMac
Cyrus Farivar: Senior Business Editor – MacBook Air
Iljitsch van Beijnum: Ars Contributor – MacBook Pro
Jon Brodkin: Senior IT Reporter – Mac Mini running Windows 7 on a partition (lest he be disinvited from the IT book club)
Chris Foresman: Ars Contributor – MacBook Air
Megan Geuss: Staff Editor – MacBook and PC Desktop (for reasons unknown)
Eric Bangeman: Managing Editor – Mac Pro & MacBook Air
Cesar Torres: Social Editor – iMac
Ryan Paul: Open Source Editor – MacBook Air and (gratuitous neckbeard) PC Tower running Ubuntu
Peter Bright: Microsoft Editor – self-built full tower PC, Lenovo X300 laptop, MacBook Pro, and for Samsung Series 7 Slate. Schizophrenia attributable to not using a Mac full-time.
Casey Johnston: Ars Contributor – MacBook Pro
Jacqui Cheng: Senior Apple Editor – iMac and MacBook Air
